The “Climate Advocacy” department is in charge of all national, Europe-wise, and international advocacy activities, including all actions covering UNFCCC negotiations. It promotes networking with other organizations and institutions and collaborates with all other sections to promote a coherent, effective, science-based external projection of ICN.
Each year our delegates participate as observers at the Conference of the Parties (COPs) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to closely follow the negotiation process and keep the Italian public updated on the main outcomes.
Climate Action by EU Citizens Delivers for Development (ClimACT) is a pan-European advocacy, communication, mobilization and training project funded by the European Commission for the period 2020-2024. ICN collaborates with more than 20 European organizations affiliated with Oxfam and Climate Action Network International.
A completely free training on climate, mitigation, adaptation, risks and European policies addressed to more than 50 municipalities in Emilia and Tuscany, followed by engagement and communication actions in the territories. A pilot project supported by European Climate Foundation for the biennium 2021-2022.
How to keep together ecological transition, economic growth and new jobs? In 2020 ICN published a report on the Italian emission system and possible paths towards a sustainable decarbonisation. The report is available for free download in Italian and English.
